Does anyone have any recommendations to links to free content / books that would help people develop soft skills (e.g., public speaking, time management, negotiating, etc.)? Have you come across anything that you were wooed by?

You know LinkedIn learning has some great content it’s free up to point. And I think Glassdoor might. I always go to YouTube and search for trainings. Hope it helps!

I love the LinkedIn learning options so I echo the previous comment but also Coursera has some free options for Time Management and Negotiating online courses.

It's not a specific book--but I have found that gaining a better understanding of how people work, looking at psychology and what motivates people has helped my soft skills greatly.

I'm an account manager, but want to get better at helping and managing my team. So, I've started doing some of the copywriting myself so I can get a better feel for what's involved, what's needed, and how I can help others improve. I recently attended an SEO conference and then spent a weekend reading everything I can get my hands on. I've also got a reading list I'm building out. What are your favorite books and sources to become better at copywriting?

I lead a team of women (ranging from 2-8 years into their careers) and want to advocate for their career growth with management. I’ve made the case for promotions and raises (have been pushing for this for months and keep being told “soon”—but I won’t give up), but I also want to try smaller asks and would love suggestions. Are there any books, one-off classes/trainings, virtual events, memberships, etc. that you’d recommend? Thank you!

I have a question, but to put it in context takes more characters than this allows--I'll explain more in a reply. Briefly, I struggled through seven miserable years of teaching until I finally got asked back by a school in 2019. My classroom management was disastrous; I knew it, but couldn't seem to fix it. Then I took a seminar, and got better. It really was that simple, though of course I'm still learning. So, can classroom management be taught? I believe so, but no one else seems to agree.
